As we go forth into the summer months, we are sent by God to continue to do Jesus’s work in the world. Watch this video, Do Something by Matthew West and check out some ideas on how you can be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Your passport booklet received at the May gathering is a guide for your household. As you continue Jesus’s mission in the world this summer, stamp your passport -- or draw a picture or write a little description of what you did -- in a square. Check the suggestions below for ideas, but please don’t limit yourself to those suggestions! See how many squares your household can fill this summer!
